Call me old-fashioned but so far I’m still relying on Google and of course, Tom's Guide whenever I’m looking for deals for my electronics , getting my news, or basically anything else I need to search for online.

Nevertheless, as AI chatbots continued to evolve and actually started giving us meaningful replies to our prompts, it has gotten people thinking about what will happen to the future of search. Companies have long been relying on SEO experts to try to cling on to that coveted first page on Google search results.

I decided to drop in on ChatGPT, Google Gemini, and Perplexity which all offer live web access to see just how far we’ve come in terms of search capabilities among AI chatbots.
